Re: EP High

TIGERNATION
I heard the same thing you got good coaches here but they have no clue thats why no one trust episd. so sad for coaches that applied and kids at ephs we want someone that knows the community and has ties to the school whats so hard about that.
Why do you insist on having a guy with ties to the school? What has EPHS done.. ever that we'd want to have it continue. We need fresh blood with fresh ideas to bring some life into this program.

Tigernation sounds like a disgruntled coach who didn't get a sniff of the interviews and is now bitter.

Everyone else throwing ideas out there. Something unethical going on? Like what?? Money laundering??

Re: EP High

TIGERNATION
how do you figure that would be a shame if thats the case
Well in episd the trend is that it's done deals. Check the track record

You all need to stop with all the wins and losses argument. We need to start judging these coaches based on weather or not the job is better after they showed up. Does the team look organized, disciplined, are the coaches doing their job preparing the kids for the game, or does it all just look like complete crap? I\'m sorry but Bill Belichick will not go undefeated at San Eli or Jefferson. San Eli may have only won 3 games this year, but how did the team look? Were they competitive? Did the coaches put the players in position to be successful and it just didn\'t happen? That what needs to be looked at when you are looking for a Head Coach. Or you can look for coaches that come from schools that have the best players that always win thinking that somehow your school magically will start to win. I hope EP High finds a good one who truly cares about the kids and the community. If you do that everything else will fall into place, but make sure you give the coach a legitimate chance to be successful.
This is the best thing that has been said here. We just want the guy that is best for the job.

Re: EP High

Am no coach am a certified pipe layer lol just want the best for the community and it’s only my opinion but where they get he better win cause the lack of numbers is not an issue and if it’s gonna be the same song and dance don’t be surprised if I start a thread “I told you so”

Well, i wont be surprised that the thread would be hard to read, whiny, and full of misspelled words. I wonder if you do anything to help the team now. My guess is you dont other than sit in the stands and bad mouth the coaches. The same coaches that you are crying to get the job now.

Re: EP High

Ok tell us who is the best guy for the job what does ephs need genius lol

Re: EP High

That's easy! It needs someone that graduated from there. And if there isn't anyone then find someone from that area; someone who can connect with the kids and the community. For example, look at Pichardo at Austin. He's a Bowie guy but knows the kids in that area and it's working.

There has to be a coordinator or assistant coach somewhere that fits that criteria.

Re: EP High

That’s what am saying also find some one who knows the kids and community if you look am sure you can find someone like that pachardo is a good leader and has a good staff round him

Re: EP High

But I wouldn't make it an in staff hire. No disrespect to those coaches, but the school should want to wash it's hands from the former staff. Or at least let the new head coach decide who he would want to keep.

Re: EP High

I agree with that 100% they need a new voice but with ties to the school that’s all am saying

Re: EP High

I dont get why they need ties in the community to coach football.

Re: EP High

People that know the kids and will be a good role model for the kids and can deal with the community so they can take part of the process

Walker isnt from the franklin community and wins, melton isnt from the americas community and wins, famaligi isnt from the montwood community and wins, saban isnt from the alabama community and wins. Get out of here with that garbage thinking. How about hire the best football coach. Winning cures all

Re: EP High

All the programs you named have a ton of winning tradition come on you can’t see that. Or they are in a heavily populated area come on someone has too get the kids out change the culture to where everyone is involved

Yes and who better to do that then someone from a winning culture. Why would you recycle someone from within who is already part of the bad culture.

Re: EP High

Not saying someone on staff am saying some one that has ties too the school or is from the community

Re: EP High

Again like I said before non of those coaches mentioned had ties to the community yet they are successful

I beg to differ on the numbers not being an issue. Across the board from 9th, JV to Varsity numbers are not the greatest. If not mistaken, in recent years wasn't the 9th grade disbanded during the season? I may have gotten this mixed up with Riverside though.

Austin has changed the mentality over the past couple of seasons. Great to see. My brother played there back in the early 70's when I remember some great battles with Coronado! But lets also not forget that some of these schools such as Austin and Burges have had the help of a few new kids thanks to the military. Still, nice to see them win again.

Re: EP High

The La High job is not posted on EPISD anymore. Who can confirm of a decision was made or job will be reopened?

Re: EP High

Know for a fact they haven't done the second round of interviews yet. Might be they're going to report the job

Re: EP High

Heard job is gonna be opening soon

Re: EP High

Looks like you heard wrong. Maybe with the shutdown this job won’t be filled for a while.

Re: EP High

Job will reopen for applications again. But with the COVID-19 shut down. Who knows when they're going to fill the job.

Re: EP High

I am an ex Tiger. I have news all this is a moot point. My wife works with the UIL Board of Directors and the word is Football around the State will be cancelled due to the pandemic. They are going to wait until Independence weekend to announce it because they don't want a riot. Only chance we have is if Mr. LoofLirpa the head of the W.H.O. knows we want it to continue. But what does someone all the way in Stockholm care about Texas HS Football?

Re: EP High

This whole coaching search was a joke I heard they went ahead and had second round interviews but anyways if they cancel football season then they r going to cancel all sports and that would be sad just saying sad for the kids

Re: EP High

No matter the status of next season start time I am surprised no one has been named for the job yet.

Re: EP High

Word is out Aguilar got it just waiting for all this corona to b over

Re: EP High

Well it's not what you know but who you know...process was extremely shady. Mr. Paz got his boy, two guys that have connected Fathers. Guess it helps just a little. Good luck coach Aguilar.

Re: EP High

Why cant it just be that he was the best candidate for the job.

Re: EP High

Pretty stupid to wait if they have a choice. Much staffing and planning time going to waste.

Re: EP High

Ray Aguilar is the man. Posted tweet 4 hours ago saying bye bye to SE.

Re: EP High

I guess JR can thank daddy for this job. Completely unacceptable. My son will definitely be transferring. Sad.

Re: EP High

Your son ain't transferring out shut up. How can his daddy have helped him with this job. Who should have gotten it

Re: EP High

Coach Aguilar did a great job out in San Eli the last few seasons. He changed the culture of the program and got everybody on the same page as far as athletics went. You could tell there was a different energy around the program. It may not have always shown up in the win / loss column, but in a community like that you're always going to have ups and downs as far as talent goes.

El Paso high made a good hire here. If anyone out there knows who were the finalists for the job then we could have a debate. However, I feel like this a good hire for the oldest High School in El Paso. Coach Aguilar will bring his own energy and enthusiasm to the school and the program. It will take some time to make El Paso a perennial contender in that tough district, however, I feel that you will be able to notice things slowly start to change around the football program and all other athletic programs at the school as well.

Re: EP High

Lmao come on his dad just gave his son the job it was all bs but what do you expect from this district. Your telling me he was in such a hurry to leave San Eli he was a finalist at EPHS and Chapin. Episd has good OC and DC that work hard and never get a chance because of bs like this I’ll say this he is not gonna beat Austin he will have a tough time getting out of the lower shelf of that district Jeff is better so is Irvin and Austin is tough so who is he gonna beat Burges or Andress or will he beat Bowie he will struggle remember coach wells and Denenger how about Hernandez How did that go???

Yo "Pantha", did you pass grammar in English Class?

Did you really just call that district tough. Lol that's the funniest thing I have read today. May be the weakest district in the state.

So let's just be honest. Episd does promote its coordinators. Settle down their pantha.......... am I missing something does Aguilar dad work at el paso high. Wouldn't that be a conflict of interest. Or is he a central office big Wig. Inform those of us in the dark.
